The people in general are pretty ignorant and tend to generalize, relate islam, Middle Eastern Arab world or with desert. For most Spaniards and I think in other Muslim countries like everything is “Moor”, has nothing to do ethnically one “Moor” which is a North African Berber, with an Arab from Oman or of Uzbequistan turkomano, unless musulmaners in general are mostly, although we can find Orthodox in Syria, Azerbaijan to Turkey the Arab Christians in Lebanon on Israel. Nor has nothing to do a Muslim Sufi Konya, with a fanatical Taliban Afghan, a typical Muslim or Tashkent or Indonesia. On snow or ski more of the same, total ignorance, there are ski resorts in Morocco, Algeria, Iran and Lebanon or Syria snow falls in almost all Middle Eastern countries, without going too far occasionally snows in Baghdad, Jerusalem or Damascus and not talk about Kabul, Tehran and northern Pakistan where snowfall is Cracking. Turkey is a country where winter is a cold noses inside, I've even been to Winter in Istanbul with one of the most intense I've seen snowfall. Anyway people should read more and also travel, that ignorance is cured watching world.
